The grocery store that will be filling the soon to be vacant A&P in Danbury has been confirmed. ShopRite, which has a location in Brookfield, will be going into the Padanaram Road building being vacated by the A&P Super Foodmart.
A&P announced this summer that it was filing for bankruptcy. The Danbury location is closing in November.
ShopRite's parent company, Wakefern Food Corporation, said that it would take several months to renovate the building before opening. Wakefern Foods says it has acquired 13 stores from A&P's parent company the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company. Danbury is the only location it purchased in Connecticut.
